let’s get stinko

Ever since it garnered so many awards, I’ve had HBO’s Mildred Pierce on my radar. I watched Part One a few months ago, and recently I’ve finally watched the remaining four parts. Here’s a list of things I love about it:

1. Kate Winslet; she does no wrong
2. it’s a period piece; I’m a sucker for period pieces
3. considering the times (1930s–1940s), there are several women running businesses
4. Mildred and Monty’s love scenes—very hot
5. Monty’s speech about filling the home with things that matter and have meaning
6. the final toast—Bert: “Let’s get stinko.” Mildred: “Yes…let’s get stinko.”
